Mikesgroover The first Oysterhead show in five years and perhaps the final ever(?), this lived up to the expectations of the Bonnaroo crowd. They ran through the Oysterhead standards from The Grand Pecking Order with a loose version of Jailhouse Rock thrown in for good measure. Everyone was in good spirits, with Les initially sporting a foam-rubber pigs head and later a half-Elvis mask.

Plenty of extended exploration here and general weirdness, especially on Rubberneck Lions. A great set, with Copeland a rock and Trey delivering plenty of strong guitar work. My only complaint is that this kind of weirdness would have been better-placed as a late-night set then in the midafternoon heat. Video of the show is available on YouTube.
Score: 1

tillmanj The only thing that would have made this show better would have been if it had been a late night show instead of in the middle of the day in brutal sun. Much weirdness and awesome exploratory jams. I feel lucky to have seen what is most likely the last Oysterhead show ever...
